I awoke from my tranquilizing sleep by shades of pink and orange seeping through my bedroom window.  I stretched my feet and arms and rubbed at my eyes before peeling the covers off of my body.  I got up, still entranced by the beauty outside, and let out a sigh.  You know when you cant express in words how wonderful you’re feeling or just how beautiful something is and a sound just automatically pours out of your mouth?  It was one of those sighs.  I walked towards the balcony and unlocked the old wood doors that lead out to my heaven: Tuscany.  Straight in front of me were the most vibrant shades of greens, pinks, and blues.  The tuscan hills were perfectly shaped, and the greenery was extremely well kept as if someone painted this dream world right in front of my eyes.  The sun was beaming down in all the right spots, I couldn’t help but smile to myself.  I walked back inside, made my bed and headed down the creaky stairs to see if anyone was awake.  I had no sense of time, but I didn’t mind at all.  I walked past the living room, and turned in to the kitchen.  I said my “Good Morning’s” to some of my family members who were preparing breakfast for themselves and went to the cupboard in the dining room to get a perfect little italian champagne glass.  I poured some orange-carrot juice in to my glass and walked outside one of the many doors in the villa.  I sat down on a chair facing the hills and watched as the sheep descended from a nearby farm.  I heard their bells jingling from afar and started to gaze out in to the distance behind the hills.  I wondered what was directly behind the view I had, and what was directly behind that, and so fourth.  My thoughts were interrupted by the sheep being herded right in front of me.  I tried to count how many there were but pretty soon I just saw white puffy blurs that made me think of cotton balls.  I  waved and said “Ciao!” as I saw the shepherd look in my direction.   He waved and said “buongiorno” in a perfect italian accent.  I couldn’t help but smile from ear to ear.  I closed my eyes and drifted back in to my dream world, still smiling of course
